2012 Golden Globes, My Best and Worst

Well the awards season as officially taken off… and I am excited for the fashion! Let’s talk 2012 Golden Globe awards! Best and Worst, GO!

Best: *Claire Danes in J. Mendel looks edgy and sophisticated at the same time. This dress is structured and sexy in the places that certainly fit Claire (hello back and bum).

*Selma Hayak in Gucci makes me actually love sequins and shine. Her dress may not be the most inventive but I think she looks gorgeous.

Best: *Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci is a vision. I know the feathers might not be for everyone but she truly embraces being fashion forward and Lordy, I love her!  

*Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann. Dude, you have got to give her mad fashion props. She looks F.I.E.R.C.E and makes a feminine color look almost masculine. Am I right? 

*Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen looks happy and she wears it well. Almost like Jessica Rabbit (in a good way), she looks sexy and classy. Tousled hair? I approve.

Best: *Emma Stone in Lanvin, there is nothing wrong with this look. That belt? Genious. The colorblocking? Genious. She is most definitely a stunner. Now, I didn’t notice  

*Laura Dern‘s dress until she won her Golden Globe but I am really digging the green beaded jersey number. Who designed it? I couldn’t tell you. Like I said, I missed her on the red carpet. 

*Michelle Williams in Jason Wu. The reason I love this gown so much is that it is so different from everything that everyone else is wearing. Navy, velvet cutouts? Yeah, I didn’t think I would love it that much either. I definitely feel her channeling Mia Farrow this go around.

Best Hair: *Charlize Theron and her glittery headband/ side bun type look.  *Kate Winslet’s side waves and effortless elegance.  *Tilda Swinton’s shaved up the side, volume on the top jobbie… something we all wish we had the balls for.

Worst: *Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen. I don’t know if it’s her purply gray hair or that the dress seems like it needed to be steamed a little more but I just think she looks off and not nearly as fabulous as she could. Not a win, Kelly. 

*Sarah Michelle Gellar in Monique Lhuillier… gasp! This is not the way to make your red carpet comeback SMG. While I don’t hate the blue and white dye effect that much, I just think this dress to puffy and had it been more fit and flare, I wouldn’t detest it so much. It’s just a lot. Zoom in and her makeup is all blue and sparkly too. Just not as classy as I would like…

…. and as much as I hate to do this, *Zooey Deschanel. From her side bangs, to the collar to the front of that dress… I get she was going for “cute, zany girl” but I don’t understand the white/silvery collar to the lime green then I think olive green… and I know it’s Prada, but I still don’t like it.

Worst: *Lea Michele looks like a hot silver feathery mess in Marchesa. I don’t get it and I don’t get people’s obsession with her. Dare I say it’s kind of a little whore-ish (sorry Marchesa!)… 

I know I will get some heat for this but I am not feeling *Angelina Jolie‘s look this year. In her Atelier Versace, it’s like the red was an afterthought and just thrown on. While I don’t mind that she matched her purse and lips to the dress, why not wear the red shoes to boot? It almost seems disjointed without it. Yeah, I just think she has looked better and I don’t understand why more fashionistas didn’t question the taste of this… are we scared of Angelina? (a post for another day)

*Diana Agron, you are so cute, why the crazy red, lacy, ruffled, cutout concoction? It’s just far too much. I am not familiar with Giles but I am not impressed.

Do you have your favorites that I am missing? Do you disagree with my best and worst?

2012 Golden Globes, My Best and Worst

  1. I'd have to switch Tilda and Angelina. I love the top of Tilda's outfit, the jacket part, but I hate the skirt. I wish it were a pant suit, or a fuller a-line skirt in a less clingy fabric. The color is terrific though. As for Angie, I wish she had ditched the red purse and gone cream or metallic. Otherwise, I think she's a vision. It's nice to see her in something other than black.

    I LOVED Claire Danes! Michelle Williams and Laura Dern too. I thought the red was fab on Reese, but just a LITTLE too tight in the tummy. I didn't think it was flattering from a side view. I actually didn't mind Angelina Jolie and Dianna Agron. Kelly Obsourne looked horrendous, but I honestly think it was mostly her hair. What is she thinking?! SMG – oh, I hate to say this, because I love my Buffy – but do not let your 2 year old daughter pick out your GG dress, no matter how cute she is when she says “Momma, wear this!” Ugh. On other notes: I liked Lea Michele's gown, even though she annoys me. And I thought Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Alba, Kate Winslet, and Jessica Chastain looked GORGEOUS!

  3. I loved Claire Danes look!  The back was fabulous!  I also really liked Emma Stone but I have always loved her.  I was a big fan of Kate Beckinsale's dress!  I kind of liked Angelina's look.  I think worse dress had to be Sarah Michelle Gellar (yuck!)

  4. Lys Rose Jones says:

    Great pics for “best dressed”!  I actually like Zooey Deschanel's look – somebody should have gotten rid of that collar, though!

    I am SO happy you put Angelina Jolie on the “worst dressed”.  I think she has threatened to kill everybody in Hollywood – they all were acting like they were scared of her! I have always thought she was a weirdo!

  5. Erin Cummings says:

    I love reading your recaps, because we're so right on and we're so far off. It happens every time. I thought Michelle Williams was adorable, but I couldn't stand the dress.

  6. I am in love with the dress Clare is wearing.  Yes ma'am talk about back & bum.  She was by far one of the best dresses as you stated for sure.  I will admit though, I'm not feeling the Tilda Swinton look at all, makes me think of David Bowie.  I agree with all your other best/worst choices though & I think Jolie is a bit over rated so to see her on your worst list, I won't give you any heat for it 😉

  7. Debbie Leiby says:

    the only problem i have with angelina's dress is the color is too pale for her.  if it were flipped (red dress from top to bottom, with a pink collar), i think we all may have felt differently about it?
